Interventional Radiology- The Basics, This is a two day course aimed at radiology trainees in the first three years of training and junior doctors. The course has been running for over 10 years but has been refreshed for 2022 in conjunction with the 2021 RCR curriculum for core trainees and in view of the 2021 IR subspeciality curriculum.
The Interventional Radiology ‘The BASICS’ Course is designed to introduce junior trainees and non-radiology doctors to this fascinating and diverse area of medicine that truly has to be seen to be believed! The Basic course allows delegates to get expert teaching and hands on guided sessions where you can begin to explore just what can be done through a small skin nick! This is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops with the focus on hands on learning.
